T O N I G H T !

June 25, 2010

I can’t enter on a geared bike, that would be cheating and I would probably cruise the win so it’s the trackie tonight, however I have not ridden my fixed bike properly for so long, thus I am quivering. Actually a bit scared of macking those speeds again.

So, If you see no posts next week it’s because I am in hospital.

P3 Patent.

June 24, 2010

I love patent drawings. No matter how new the technology, they always manage to look about a million years old.

Behind the Peloton…

June 23, 2010

… with the Ritte boys.

Shit’s too funny! Watch them all here and ROFL to your heart’s content.

Shouts to Josh for the linky.

Feather Hotness.

June 22, 2010

Ricky from Feather cycles is killing it. I thought his initial offerings were good but these are serious, Feather’s gone from strength to strength!

Just peep his latest offerings, I think you’ll agree that he’s doing an utterly fantastic job and that green Rando is straight off the hook ( street slang for really good ).

I certainly know where I’ll be going for my custom roady! You do me nice price?

Cannibal Attack.

June 22, 2010

Bit of a wobble-cam fest later on but great viewing nevertheless.

Mo Lust.

June 18, 2010

More banging bikes just added over at Speed Bicycles. The quality of the cycles on this website is astonishing, so much good stuff. Great work fellas, keep em coming!

TdF 1994.

June 18, 2010

Spotted.

Rollapaluza record Smashed by me.

June 18, 2010

Ha! Not quite. As you can see I did not even come close to ‘smashing’ the record of 17.90 seconds held by Matt Crampton. Yes that’s right 17.90 seconds. That’s 100.6 kmh and 4 pedal revolutons per second!!! Shiiit.

Birmingham’s own Sam Hill got top spot at yesterday’s session down the Bullring, beating me by .5 of a second so well done Sam, good lad. Can’t wait for the return… Nocturne series? bring it.

Graeme Obree Geneva to Nice.

June 17, 2010

Once over the top, another amazing 1000m descent had Stuart and I in aero tucks on the long straights, and on the ragged edge of grip into the switchback sections. Cars by now were just an inconvenience to be drafted until we could out-sprint them into the bends. Taking a hand off the bars to give a thumbs up to any drivers that got out of our way as we swept past at 50mph-plus was exciting.

Great read and a few great shots too, especially loving the Galibier shots. My, my the sign that used to say ‘Col du Galibier’ now resembles something outside of a skateboard shop. Enough stickers, already!

Meeting of Minds.

June 17, 2010

This fantastic event takes place next Thursday evening and I am involved, see my name? Second down from top? Right, so we’ve cleared that up then.

I have a few photography works exhibited at M.O.M – Meeting of Minds but to be honest, the caliber of work that is going to be on show next week, besides mine is absolutely mind blowing and I cannot wait to see what some people will be putting in.

If you are free and like a bit of art and creativity, pass along, it’s free and good!

So I went down Polo…

June 17, 2010

… didn’t play but I did take a couple of snaps.

My ‘sports’ photography needs a lot of work so apologies for the lack of action shots here guys. Next time I’ll do better, promise. Actually f**k that, my picture of the Pollard with the ‘wommed’ wheel is ace!!!

If you would like a blast at polo ( you really should, it’s hella fun ) feel free to join the Black Stabbath Polo club ( great name ) every wednesday at Calthorpe park in highgate from 6.30 pm onwards.

For more info check out the LFGSS page.
